Taiwan On High Alert After 24 Chinese Jets Breach Defense Zone In Two Incidents

Taiwan has once again scrambled jets after a large group of Chinese military aircraft breached its air defense zone on two separate occasions on Thursday. The breaches which have of late been coming almost daily, which Taipei sees as unmistakable as acts of aggression and as "warnings" against its pro-democracy relationship with the US, follow recent Chinese state media threats that the PLA military could soon fly jets and bombers directly over the island.

Thursday's fresh incidents involved 19 Chinese aircraft, including 12 J-16 fighters and two nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, according to Taiwan's defense ministry. Specifically the morning breach occurred in the same zone as many others of late - the southwest part of Taiwan’s ADIZ. Later in the afternoon the defense ministry cited another incursion involving five more PLA jets, which totals an unusually large 24 Chinese aircraft for the day.
